Choose from several sweet Greek honey categories
Greek honey falls into two broad super-categories and several unique subcategories, so you’ll have fun exploring various brilliant brands until you find your favourite.
The super-categories are:
- Honeydew honey (AKA forest honey or dasomelo) - produced by bees that feast on trees like conifers, pines, firs, and other sylvan plants.
- Floral honey (AKA anthomelo) - produced by bees from flower nectar, typically from thyme, orange blossom and heather.
Thyme honey is one of the most popular subcategories amongst connoisseurs, but fir honeydew tastes fabulous, orange blossom honey has an amazing fresh perfume and heather honey has a delicate aroma and a subtle, refined taste.
